The Republic of Tajikistan

Tajikistani Proverbs

Tajikistan is a mountainous, landlocked country in Central Asia with an estimated population of 8.7 million people as of 2016, and an area of 143,100 km2 (55,300 sq mi). It is bordered by Afghanistan to the south, Uzbekistan to the west, Kyrgyzstan to the north, and China to the east. Traditional homelands of Tajik people included present-day Tajikistan, Afghanistan and Uzbekistan. (Source)

The official and vernacular language of Tajikistan is Tajik although Russian is routinely used in business and communication. The Constitution mentions Russian as the “language for inter-ethnic communication”, but an amendment passed in 2009 was thought to remove all Russian’s official roles, but it was later clarified that the status was later re-instated and Russian has returned to its status, being a language permissible for law-making, although all official communications should formally first take place in Tajik. Russian is regularly used unregulated between different ethnic groups in the country and thereby fulfilling its stated constitutional role.

Dushanbe is the capital and largest city of Tajikistan. Dushanbe means Monday in the Tajik language.

“Surudi Milli” is the title of the national anthem of Tajikistan.
